GF bread available but not on menu. Asked them to changed gloves and they did without hesitation. Rest of the menu is clearly marked. The GF was better than most. Great option for on the road.

My sandwich was good as it always here. I didn’t know if locations varied on whether they had GF bread and didn’t see anything on the menu that indicated they had it, but they had it.

I’m sure there is cross contamination happening in the back, but that’s not a concern for me.

I usually have the Pecan Berry salad. It’s so good and I’ve never had a problem with it. They have gf bread and I’ve had sandwiches with no problem. Side items are either in single serve, sealed cups or bagged chips. And, of course, their iced tea is perfect.

I enjoy going here. It’s nice they have gluten free bread for their sandwiches. I don’t know that they take great precautions but I haven’t gotten sick here before.

A go-to spot that is safe. The only caveat is that recently staff does not seem to be as well trained on cross contamination as they previously were. Westside does better than east- generally speaking
